HOW TO LAY TURF

GETTING THE BEST RESULTS FROM YOUR NEW LAWN

So you've decided to re-turf your lawn? Good decision.

Laying turf instantly makes a garden look "finished". It covers up all the mud and soil so that it won't be tramped into the house and it creates a great backdrop for other plantings.

If you're selling your home, a freshly turfed lawn increases kerb appeal and it can help you get a quick sale and a better price.
